  1. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Man that’s terrible. Absolutely terrible. I hope he can come back from it like Paul George did.
  2. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Oh goodie, the Yankees are coming back again. Please Houston, don’t crap this series away.
  3. Kansas City Scouts: Resurrection

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions everyone! I really appreciate them! It may not be today, but I’ll get to the suggestion to add more navy to the white sweater soon.
  4. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Quick thoughts: 1) Verlander tossed a GEM. Great complete game. 2) I find myself really wanting the Dodgers to clinch the pennant simply so Kershaw can finally say he pitched in (and possibly won) a World Series. He’s working on building an all-time great resume, and a World Series is really all that’s missing. The baseball history lover in me wants to see the potential Koufax of this generation start fulfilling that potential on the postseason end.
  5. Kansas City Scouts: Resurrection

    While playing NHL 17, I came across the Kansas City Scouts' logo when messing around on Create-A-Team. I got to thinking pretty hard about what I would do if I were ever approached to build a new Scouts identity from the ground up, and got to sketching. Today I have a finished product to share! The Scouts looked really good during their time, and I'd be perfectly fine if a resurrected Scouts franchise skated out of the gate wearing those exact get-ups. I wanted to challenge myself, however, and went the way of the Winnipeg Jets with a built-from-scratch identity. This identity revolves around a war-painted horse with feathers attached to the mane as the primary mark. The alternate marks are inspired by painted hand prints that warriors would place on their horses for both accomplished missions and an oath of vengeance. The original logo is also used as the primary crest of an alternate third fauxback, which is a red, navy, and gold version of the original sweaters. Let me know what you think! C&C is appreciated, you know the drill!

    Boy, was Keuchel nasty tonight. Tanaka pitched well too. Really a good pitcher’s duel. I’m not so sure the Astros have a big enough lead, but I hope it holds.
  7. The Sports Media Thread

    Unpopular opinion maybe, but I personally think Gary Thorne is one of the best. I really enjoy listening to anything he’s calling. Ernie Johnson’s a pretty underrated baseball voice in my opinion, too. Other than that, that was a pretty good list. I’m definitely a fan of Michaels and Doc.

    I still think the Indians should go with the script “I”. Loved that cap and think it would work well as a primary. It’d also be a unique cap letter in comparison to the rest of the league. I doubt theyd ever do it, but I personally think it’s their best option.
  9. Why root for the home team?

    I stick with the Jazz because 1) too strong a bond through locale, family tradition and such, but also 2) I really admire and respect how the franchise has been run. In the grand scheme of things, their lack of championships puts them lower on the league totem pole, and I get that. I get it would be easier to root for a team with a more storied history and better success rate. But the Jazz have been a top class organization for years, and even beyond all my bonds to them as a born and raised Utahan, that culture they’ve built speaks volumes to me as a fan. The Millers have been very, very good owners and you can trust them, which is I’m sure more than can be said for other owners. Not having a ring sucks, losing stars to bigger markets sucks, and usually being an afterthought league-wide sucks, but there’s a whole lot of good to being a Jazz fan that keeps me going anyways.
  10. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 5

    This week was so good that I would flip channels and think “best matchup of the week. No wait, that one. No wait!...” I think I settled on 49ers/Colts, but each on that list make a good case.

    I’m not implying they have no business being this far, just that I feel like they’re riding some magic here (which isn’t meant to be a knock or a bad thing). I just didn’t think they were better than Cleveland (still don’t, all told) and I don’t think they’re better than Houston. They very well could win the pennant anyways.
  12. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    My mind says Houston in 5, but my gut says that the Yanks aren’t done playing Houdini yet. Didi or Gardner will smack some timely homer after fouling off 40 pitches that will turn the tide somewhere down the line.

    Two Didi bombs off Kluber??
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Teams who got it right the first time, then crapped it all away (in no particular order): - San Diego Padres - Minnesota Wild - Jacksonville Jaguars Think about it, Jags. This isn’t hard.

    I see something like that in the diehard LA and Oakland fans I know (Utah’s got a fair amount of school/work transplants). Arrogant as can be about the Lakers and Warriors, but much less so about the Dodgers or A’s. I cant say I know the same for Yankees fans though, as the only ones I know are local-born bandwagoners who’ve never heard of Whitey Ford and that’s a class of its own.
